Real Sociedad made their debut this afternoon in the League with a victory at the Nuevo Mirandilla against Cádiz thanks to a goal from their new signing, the Japanese Take Kubo, from a pass from Mikel Merino. Sergio's Cádiz had seven casualties and accused him.
The match had pace despite being played in intense heat. Real Sociedad dominated the game and had much more of the ball. It had a shaky start but went from less to more. Cádiz began warning with a shot from Choco Lozano, but La Real gradually put Cádiz behind. The goal came in the 24th minute in a measured pass by Mikel Merino to uncheck Take Kubo, who left the Cadista center-backs to score at will.
From there, Cádiz tried, which had its most dangerous chance of the first half in a shot by Fali that Mikel Merino sent for a corner under the sticks.
The second half began without a change of players. La Real played to cool down the game without risking in defense and Cádiz did not see a way to do damage.
After the first quarter, Cádiz went up in disorder and Real found more space to attack. Ledesma avoided Cádiz's second in a shot from outside the area by Silva. Then he saved another for Kubo and one more for Diego Rico.
In minute 78 Imanol introduced a triple change: Mikel Merino, Silva and Kubo left for Barrenetxea, Illarramendi and Ali Cho. He attacked Cádiz in the closing stages. The referee added ten extra minutes and Isak and Cho missed sung goals, but Real took all three points.
